Ford Taurus was criticized for its relatively uninteresting look and the 2020 Ford Taurus wants to fix that. The latest model will try to change the old model even though the car is one of the products that save Ford from bankruptcy.
Aside from its look, the redesign has to be done as the sale of the car is not very satisfying. The car may have sold very well in more than three decades of its era. However, recently the Ford Taurus seemed to lose in the market. Then, what does the 2020 Ford Taurus redesign offer? Here are the details.
2020 Ford Taurus redesign Inside & Outside
There are rumors said that car’s production for the US market will be stopped. However, these rumors are still debatable since the Ford Taurus has been built in China.
There is a chance where the car will be imported from China as the Chinese-made model is more comfortable than the current model. So, if the US production is stopped, then the enthusiast can expect to see the Chinese-made resemblance in 2020 Ford Taurus USA.
The New Ford Taurus Sho exterior has striking and aggressive lines which are sleeker and give an athletic impression. The wind-resistant vastly improves fuel efficiency. The look indicates the overhaul of the relatively uninteresting look that many criticized.
On the front end, there are a new bumper, grille and new headlights with updated technology. On the rear end, there is not much change, but it adapts the Chinese-made model look. Furthermore, it ditches the old glasshouse and switches it with larger windows that will give a wider and better vision.
The car will have very different packaging from the current model. It is taller and 7-inch shorter but there is 4 inches more space to the wheelbase that will give the passengers more space.
Overall, the interior design will not change much from the previous model; massive legroom and wider headspace for the passenger and wide center stack are expected to be on the 2019 Ford Taurus. On the technological aspects, the car is expected to be equipped with new LCD, electric seat change system, Park Assist System, and dual-zone environment control.
Under the hood, the New Ford Taurus will be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine can deliver 365 horsepower at 5.500 rpm with 350 lb-ft of torque. Or else, the car can also be equipped with the Ford’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that is expected to replace all of the V6. This engine can deliver 240 horsepower with 270 pound-ft of torque. Such power allows the latest Ford Taurus to reach 62 mph only in six seconds.
